And The Winner Is ....

After much deliberation, and more than a few moments of "auuuugh how do I choose", we are proud to announce the two winners of our First Ever LiveJournal Writing Contest.

Our Grand Prize Winner, chosen by a team of LiveJournal staff, is: pollinia!
Our Community Grand Prize Winner, chosen by you, is: catchingspirit!

Each of our winners will receive a $500 prize and the right to select one charity from a list of four to receive a $500 donation. Congratulations to you both, and to everyone who submitted an essay. We think this has been a tremendous success, and we can't wait to run another contest, probably later on this year.
